3. 3. Fractions  Smart boards give a visual and hands-on aspect to Mathematics, so the students not only learn about fractions but also see how fractions are applied to everyday life.
4. 4. Beginning lesson  The activity is open to grades 1-5. I want to focus on grade 1 because this will be the first time my students will be introduced to fractions.  I want to apply it to their own lives first before I pull up the activity.
5. 5. Transportation to school I will do this by first asking the students to walk up to the Smart board and placing a tally next to how they get to school  School Bus  Car  Walk
6. 6. Explanation  After tallying up the results I can then explain how we can now find a fraction for each transportation.    Define fraction, partial, wholes, halves ect. Explain to compare the groups to the total # of students in the classroom By using graphs, pie charts ect. to represent the results
